Video Archives: Blue Song ~ Mint Royale – dir. Edgar Wright (2003)

Back in 2003, I distinctly remember Mint Royale’s label questioning my casting of Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt in my Blue Song video. They wanted someone bigger, even despite our low budget and the fact that both actors were working for free to help me out.

I told the label that they would soon be huge. Cut to a few years later and they are now cult superstars all over the planet.

See the young Boosh boys along with Michael Smiley and Nick Frost in my getaway driver musical number. Another video that I am very proud of. Hope you enjoy it.

  • I love that you can pull this off. A pushy, fun, energetic music video with one of the Boosh Boys in a car, rockin’ out…

    Who knew it could be done?

  • This is still one of my favorite all-time music videos. Every time I watch it I wish it were a full-length feature film. One of these days you need to get the same cast together to make a Mighty Boosh/Nick Frost bank heist film!
